Yana Leventseva, travel blogger, art photographer and businesswoman, talks about what she always takes with her on vacation to the coast.
– This year I was in Kamchatka, Mykonos and Paris. Everywhere was good in its own way, but Mykonos evoked especially bright emotions in me. There is beautiful nature, the Aegean Sea, snow-white houses, parties, insanely delicious Greek organic food and hospitable people. During this trip, I got atmospheric pictures for social networks. And, perhaps, this is due to the fact that I prepared for photo shoots in advance – from choosing beauty products for perfect skin to wardrobe details.
Favorite travel beauty products
I always have cleansers in my travel makeup bag. In Mykonos, this was especially necessary – there is a lot of sun, the skin constantly sweats and dust settles on it, especially if you ride in a convertible. Makeup also clogs pores. I am currently using a series OBAGI for combination skin. First, I apply the Exfoliating Polish scrub, which is more like a gel with granules. It cleanses and scrubs the skin qualitatively, I also like its light and airy texture. I also always wipe my face with a tonic, and as a finishing touch – a moisturizer. In addition, once a week I use a gentle facial scrub, which makes the skin clean to the “crunch”. And after sunbathing, I make masks with aloe vera to soothe the skin.
For travel, by the way, the best option is a set of travel miniatures. Getting Skin Ready by OBAGI. It includes a cleanser for all skin types, a microcrystal polish and renewing wipes.
Love the moisturizing eye patches Racoony. After them, the result is immediately visible: wrinkles around the eyes are instantly smoothed out. I always take my favorite masks with me. Glam Glow – they are also very effective: they make the skin even and smooth.
Equally important are sunscreens. I always use lipstick tree oil SPF 6 from St Barth and SPF cream La Roche Posaywhich I update throughout the day.
Favorite things that are always in the suitcase
This year I took black swimwear with me to Greece – the trend of 2022. I found the best models mesh & flash.
There was also a hat. This is not just an accessory, but also protection for hair from the harmful effects of the scorching sun. This year, I especially liked the models with ribbons, like JACK JESUS SAID CHILL.
For evening looks I chose linen suits and dress jackets in the showroom Say No More.
